It was insane.
What's funny is that all these people crowding the Walmart's and Costco's of the world trying to prepare for COVID-19 are probably passing it among themselves trying to buy TP. Out of TP? Just rinse your ass in the shower and move on.

The virus will not stop the chickens from laying Hess, the cows from giving mild, water running out of the faucet, etc. WAKE UP EVERYONE; calm down and use some common sense before you go overboard hoarding!!!
I have stocked up Michelob Ultra, Corona, and Prosecco, Olives, Pretzels, Peanuts, and Two Cans of " Raid " Lemon Scent. Doors are locked, Shades Drawn. My neighbors think I'm out of here. That's plan A....Plan B is a secret.

My sister was in a supermarket and, of course, nothing was left. This “elderly” man shouted, “ why no toilet paper, I never heard this virus is giving people the sh&&ts!! Lol

Thanks for clearing that up. I've been trying to find some of those chickens that lay hess. Thought maybe the hoarders bought them all up.

I don't get the whole toilet paper thing either. But just out of curiosity I went onto Amazon and searched for toilet paper. Every single one that I saw was not currently available.

The best thing that any of us could have done is to install a hand held shower head. I didn't know it when I did it, but I'm not worried about running out of toilet paper.
